PhD Candidate, Department of Geography, UHM

Since the fall of President Suharto Indonesia has experienced significant political and administrative changes. Among the most conspicuous changes are those that have come to the geography of government.

Though there are strong incentives for the formation of new regions, many proposals fail. This is talk is concerned with one such long-shot case: the prospective province of Puncak Andalas on the island of Sumatra. On the surface the chances for success would seem quite limited, but a group of local elites is convinced that the province will eventually be created.
